Social work is largely delivered through organizations as they go about the task of transforming social policy into services. The way these organizations are administered affects the way in which they function. Use of a trauma-informed and human rights perspective in the development and implementation of these administrative patterns and procedures is critical to the practice, performance and behaviors of its agents and the services they provide to clients. This course offers students an introduction to the theory and practice of administration and leadership from a social work perspective. Theories of management, organization structures, roles and skills for mezzo and macro practice within an agency or organization are examined. The unique perspective and strategic evidence-based management that social workers bring to the resolution of agency problems, from federal and state rules to budgeting and staff issues, is explored.
